What is an EDC bag?

While some of us already have our bug out bags in order it can pretty much guaranteed that most of them are always left at home mainly because they are too big, heavy and bulky to lug around everywhere we go.  An EDC bag, also known as an “every day carry” bag, is a smaller version of your main bug out bag that is meant to be carried with you at all times wherever you go whether it’s for a walk, a hike, a bike ride or to bring along in your car when you go to work.  It’s purpose is to store all of the survival supplies needed to enable you to get out of harms way and/or get back home if you were to ever find yourself caught in an accident, disaster or shtf scenario.

Why you should have one should be a given.  I can’t stress how important it is to prepare and keep one of these these bags with you at all times.  All you have to do is look around you.  Accidents and disasters are happening all around us and can strike anytime and anywhere without warning.  We keep hearing on the news how natural disasters, riots and terrorist attacks are on the rise and quite honestly with the way our world is going down the tubes it only makes sense to have one.  Regardless if it’s for something minor or serious, chances are you will probably end up needing it at one point or another and you’ll be thanking yourself that you took the time to put one together and had it with you.
